Pressie from Daddy

@ 41 months

Ryan first laid eyes on this husky dog on skates many months ago at Build a Bear. I did not buy as I find it too expensive for a plush animal like this. Few weeks ago, we saw the same dog again from a different Build A Bear outlet in United Square. This time Ryan was very adamant to bring it home. I know he likes the dog very much but his interest is always short lived and the dog is simply over priced. After much pursuasion he agreed to come back another day to get it believing it was really a ‘non buying day’ and they would not sell the dog to him (our agreement that nobody could buy anything on a non buying day). Before we left, he told the salesgirl to write his name on the dog so nobody could buy it except him.

That whole evening and at night, Ryan continued talking about the dog non stop until Daddy gave in and promised we would go take a look at it tomorrow (Saturday).

Saturday came and there was literally no peace from morning until afternoon. Ryan’s persistently begging for us to go check out the dog fearing the dog may have been purchased by someone else. Finally we gave in to his unwavering harrassing and went to United Square in the afternoon.

While Ryan was showing Daddy his dog, I sneaked into Esprit. How pathetic, that 10 minutes or so were the only peaceful shopping time I could get nowadays eversince Ryan become my official shadow few weeks ago. When I came out, Loida gave me first hand news saying ‘sir said buy the dog’. I wasn’t too surprised hearing that knowing Daddy hardly say no to this Daddy’s boy. He wouldn’t agree to go if he had no intention of getting it for Ryan. Hehe…

The husky dog that he couldn’t get his eyes off


There were bears, wolves, but he chose the same husky dog.


The process of stuffing the dog with polyester fiber


While the dog was being stitched, Daddy and son were busy choosing the sound to go with the dog. We wanted the dog sound unfortunately they ran out of stock. Looks like we have to go back another round for it in a few weeks’ time.


Listening attentively to instructions on how to give his dog a good fluffy spa.


After the spa (scrubbing off fiber off the dog surface) it was time to choose for the shoes and skates. Ryan was disappointed he can’t get the sandal which looks like his old pair of Crocs for his dog. We need a pair of sneakers to go with the skates. We ended with a blue pair of skechers sneakers.


Clothing range. So many to choose from but the pair Ryan wanted was out of stock.


Time for the birth certificate. Ryan thinking hard for a name. At the end, he chose ‘CLIFFORD’. Hahah.. speaking of originality.


Putting the finishing touches on the dog (how can it be complete without a name on the dog tag).


Payment .. payment…. $120 a hole in the pocket

Lo Kong is Back!!!

@ 10 months 1 week 6 days

I spent the last two nights outside, away from my ‘po pui’ (precious Ryan) – attended a friend of mine’s wedding on Tuesday and last night was a company event. When I came home both nights, Ryan was already in Zzz-land. Gave him good night kiss and not long after my ‘sai pak pak’ (shower) I also crashed. Tired lor…. That’s why no updates on my blog also.

I miss my baby a lot especially when I’m out. All the time I will give myself excuses to call home. You see gila or not… But lately I learnt to let go a bit knowing when I’m away, my baby is always on good hands. Thanks to my MIL (heehee.. I think my MIL reads my blog now :P ).

This evening I was determined to come home as early possible to play with Ryan. When I stepped into the room, I saw my baby…..

Napping soundly after 4 waking hours

Yoohoo.. Happy happy.. Hubs is also back to my bedside last night. Miss him so much la although it was just 3 nights but that’s by far the longest he has been away since Ryan’s arrival. But my baby (big) is sick. When I got home, he was half stoned from the medication and cough syrup. So, pili pala for a short while then hubs said he cannot tahan already. Oki lor.. nite nite.
